Spring Potting Clinic – April 8, 2023

Questions about how to get your orchid to rebloom, or just generally about what conditions Orchids like around their roots?

Join us at one of the largest retail orchid nurseries in the pacific northwest for a potting clinic where members will be on hand to help you re-pot your orchids, talk about potting orchid health and culture, and give you insight as to what your orchid might be telling you.

Bring up to three average sized orchids to the Potting Clinic.
Admission is Free for NWOS members and $15 for non-members, which can be applied towards becoming a member.
These clinics have always been popular. Our most experienced members give expert advice on all aspects of repotting your orchids:

  • Determining whether and when your orchid needs to be repotted. This can vary by species and time of year.
  • Diagnosing potting problems, such as root loss and decomposition of potting mixes, over-potting and under-potting.
  • Choosing the right pot type and size.
  • What’s the best potting mix for your particular orchid?
  • Can it be mounted?
  • How your environment and watering habits can affect these choices.

Come with questions, get some answers. Bring up to three plants. Then add some hands-on experience, with guidance from our volunteer members. Potting media and some pots will be available on site.
It’s an afternoon of fun and learning, and your orchids will thank you
